Founded in 1976 by Mark Weil, this was the first independent, experimental theatre in the Soviet Union. From the outset, it specialised in the production of ‘new wave’ plays and innovative interpretations of the classics. Mark Weil died tragically in 2007, on the eve of the opening of his production of The Oresteia (by Aeschylus, written c. 460 BC). The company proceeded with the performance as scheduled. Despite the loss of its founder and first director, the theatre continues to operate.
